And Melandri/BMW have to be really wondering what the heck is going on.
On a more serious note- does Melandri still have the same girlfriend? If so, where is the camera time?
You weren't watching the same telecast as me? She's still there, acting like a devoted slave. Or something? (Seen betterer in the local supermarket...)
As for the BMW 'issues', you may note that the guy that was taking them to what should have been the championship last year, but for Melandri's meltdown, is now running the Ducati MGP effort.
Dunno who's running the Beemer SBK now, but it don't look too good...
